Testimony Ends for Day in Fort Hood Gunman Hearing

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Testimony has ended for the day in a military hearing to determine if a Fort Hood Army psychiatrist should stand trial for the worst mass shooting at an American military base.

Maj. Nidal Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.

Two 911 calls were played in court Tuesday and nine witnesses testified, many of them soldiers.

A civilian nurse said three young soldiers showed no fear as a lone gunman approached them during the Nov. 5 rampage.

Hasan remains jailed. There is no bail in the military justice system. The hearing resumes on Wednesday.
